Rescue 38 miles out

Last Sunday we had call out as fishing boat has a broke down engine, flat sea and easy rescue, two boats was sent out ourselves (HSSK) and one from Ársæll (due to distance) i.e. 38 nautical miles each way.

I bet it did'nt take you long to get out there with that 275 pushing you in those perfect conditions, but a fair while to get back, if you had to stay with the tow vessel, tidy pic btw, well done.

Do you watch in the F1 offroading that takes place in your country, I think it's great viewing, I was lucky to watch them in action once on a one off UK visit, by Reading. it was great.

On our rescue boat we have twin 225 Mercury Optimax, we did only 35 knoths on the call out as it was not red alert, we can do just over 51 knoths on WOT.

Personally I do not follow the F1 off roading, but few of my friends do and you can see some great photos from my friend Bergur on his website Heimska under the "myndir" section

Cheers for the link, he's made some fantastic vids, I'm looking forward to watching more, and would highy recommend others viewing, the Torfæra section is worth viewing aswell, It's amazing how they go over water like that, but not suprising with 1000 HP+ under the lid, pushing those huge rubber paddles I suppose.
Here's another link showing some water sections,

Hi Bogi!

How did the fishing boat make the coastguard aware of their engine troubles? 38 Miles is a long way for VHF on a small boat.

Around Iceland is a extensive network of VHF repeaters which are then connected to the Coast Guard communication centre, those repeaters also work with AIS, leading to excellent coverage even for AIS-B units

p.s.
Here is the covarege of VHF around Iceland including AIS
